Why would you go for one and not the other?
For years concrete floors have only been suitable for spaces like workshops, factories and garages. However, recently it has become more and more common for people to use concrete for their floors all around the home.
With concrete floors taking over the role of tiles in many places throughout the home, there are some important comparisons that need to be made when deciding which option to go for.
While tiles might be cheaper depending on what tiles you get, concrete is much easier to clean and dust and pollen cannot set in a concrete floor, making it ideal for people who suffer from allergies. Concrete also doesn’t become cold as fast as tiles do. Concrete floors are also much more robust than tile floors and won’t take damage or wear nearly as easily. While tiles give a much wider range when it comes to looks it is possible to add a stain to your concrete floor to make it even more beautiful.
According to a recent article that was published in Business Insider South Africa, South-Africans have been paying more than what they should when getting concrete floor finishes as compared to tile floors.
Recently concrete floors have started to become more and more expensive when you compare it to the price of tile floors, which haven’t increased nearly as much. This is especially strange when you consider the fact that the price of tiles has increased faster than the price of concrete.
